Data, Statistics, and Research
About LGBTQ+ Youth in Schools, GSA's, and other relevant topics.

Here is some data about LGBTQ+ students in schools. When talking to administration at your school, it can be helpful to show them some of the data around the issues LGBTQ+ students face in school and the effectiveness of GSA's in addressing some of these issues. It is also a good topic for discussions in your GSA; you could look at the data for our state and reflect on how your school compares. Also feel free to use this data in school reports when applicable.

GLSEN - a great organization that tracks data about LGBTQ+ students in schools.
